"Hip Hop Exotica had me envisioning bling-adorned DJs and rappers flying private jets to meet up with Arabian royalty at a sun kissed resort." - Remix Magazine

"The future of Hip Hop is here!" - Jerry Heller, Co-founder Ruthless Records (NWA, Dr Dre, Easy E)

" innovative collection that will inject freshness into hip-hop projects..." - EQ Magazine

"...the unusual instrumentation alone will certainly inspire the more adventurous songwriters out there." - Virtual Instruments Magazine

From Hollywood to Inglewood, Paris to Marseille, Producer Josquin des Pres has used his west coast recording experience and southern French origins to create a unique blend of hip hop and world music. This one-of-a-kind, cross-cultural mix represents a fusion of thumpin' hip hop beats blended with live-recorded ethnic loops. World beat and hip hop collide with Asian, Indian, Arabic, Latin American, Spanish and African influences. This collection of construction kits is so compelling and innovative, that Jerry Heller, a hip hop visionary and co-founder of Ruthless Records (Dr Dre, Ice Cube, Easy E), calls it "The future of hip hop." Explore the exotic, and get with the future of hip hop today!
